Hey guys! My Bachelorette blog is back!!! However, I apologize if this blog isn’t on par with my past Bachelorette blogs. It’s probably going to be a bit more confusing than past blogs, since let’s face it, I’m basically a walking zombie right now. Ha! Mommy brain is a real thing, especially when you’re barely sleeping at night! But I’m gonna do my best to recap and give my thoughts on everything that went down in last nigh’ts episode. I love blogging about it and I want to continue to blog all season even though I missed the first two episodes!
Let me start by saying, since I haven’t gotten a chance to yet, I love Becca! She is just the sweetest and most down to earth person! I feel like it’s so important for us to see women like her in leadership roles on TV. I know a lot of people have different feelings on the show and what it teaches our youth, but I think it’s empowering to see a woman in charge of her own destiny on a show like the Bachelorette. And I just think Becca is a really great role model for all the young women out there watching the show. I’m so happy she’s our new Bachelorette!
I want to dive right into this whole Colton and Tia situation. I really like Colton. He’s certainly handsome and seems like a sweet guy. Honestly, at this point I feel like he’s one of the best options to be the next Bachelor if he doesn’t end up with Becca. But that said, I can’t help but think it’s weird that he reached out to Tia to pursue her and then applied to be on the show. Something about that just seems fishy to me. Whether he dated her first and then applied to be on the show, or applied to be on the show and then pursued her, it doesn’t really matter to me. The point is it just seems like he is trying to get into the whole Bachelor/Bachelorette world. Am I wrong in thinking this? And I don’t know if you guys saw this, but I recently read online that he dated Aly Raisman – the Olympic gymnast. The photos of them circulating online show them walking a red carpet together.
Given all of this information, it just kind of seems like Colton’s to into the fame aspect of the show. Most people go into the show not even really realizing how it’s going to change their life (I for one had NO IDEA!). I feel like Colton knows exactly how it’s going to change his life and he wants that fame. And I just don’t know if that sits right with me. I will say though, he seems like a super sweet guy and the fact that he spends so much of his time working on his charity is something to be truly admired and appreciated. It definitely takes a good person to do something like that. So while I’m not sure his intentions are true on this show, I do think he’s a really good person! Meaning, I think it’s possible to want to be famous and still be a good person. Ha! I just think Colton wants to be famous. And there’s nothing wrong with wanting to be famous. I just hope that he is actually into Becca and not playing games so he can be on the show longer and get some fame. If that makes sense. I’m so curious what you guys think about him and the situation. Please tell me what you think in the comments below because I’m wondering if other people read him completely differently, or if you guys agree with what I’m saying. Let me know!
And I guess at the end of the day I could never know his true intentions. Only he knows that. So I kind of feel bad judging him on just a feeling I have. I’m just trying to be honest about my feelings on him.
Chris and Becca’s Date-
I didn’t think I could possibly adore Becca as the Bachelorette more until I saw her date with Chris! The way she sat down with him and talked him through what he was feeling was just truly awesome to see. I feel like we saw Becca for who she truly is, which is just a genuine and kind human being. There are few moments on the show where I feel like people’s guards are completely down and they’re just speaking from the heart, rather than worrying about what they’re saying out of fear of being judged by everyone watching. And this was one of those moments. I just adore her!
Football Group Date-
The main thing I want to talk about for the group date is Clay’s injury. First, I think Clay is a great guy and I know Becca does too. But I have to say, even if he hadn’t sent himself home, I don’t think he would’ve been the guy in the end. And the main reason I say that is because she didn’t go see him at the hospital. Does she have the option to? Absolutely! Think about it this way, if you were really into a guy and he got injured on your date, and you know it would make him so happy if you went with him to the hospital, wouldn’t you go? I guess I’m assuming Clay would want her to go to the hospital. But don’t you think he would have given the fact that he’s competing with all these other guys? And by her showing up, it would’ve confirmed that she was actually into him. She had the opportunity to either go with him or get to know the other guys better. And she chose to stay with the other guys because she’s more interested in getting to know them better, plain and simple. Which is totally fine. I just wanted to point that out. But then again, I don’t think any of us really saw a connection with her and Clay anyway. But man what a sweetheart! I really hope he finds a wonderful girl that’s right for him! I just don’t think it’s Becca. Same goes with David going to the hospital and being in the ICU and Becca not going. He’s not the guy for her either.
My Pick for Becca-
After tonight‘s episode my top choice for Becca would 100% be Blake. I loved their connection during the first one-on-one date of the season and it’s quite obvious how smitten she is with him after she told us how giddy she was when he called her his girlfriend. They also just make such a cute couple! I would love to see them end up together! At this point in the season, who do you think Becca will end up with? I’d love to know what you guys think! Tell me in the comments below!
And last but not least I wanna share with you guys where you can find a few of Becca’s outfits. The red dress she was wearing during the evening portion of the first group date is so hot! It’s also available in black HERE for 50% off! And the sweater she was wearing when she met up with all her girlfriends is by 525 Amercia. I couldn’t find the exact one online but this white one is super similar. And her AMAZING velvet coat dress can be found HERE.
Ok that’s all I’ve got. Hopefully I made some sense! Ha! Now I’m off to nurse Riley.
Until next week my friends…
